What is Employment Law?

Employment law affects any business that has employees or contractors. If you employ people on a full-time, part-time, or casual basis, or contract others to work for you, employment law will be relevant to your business.

Employment law itself deals with legislation, administration, precedents and procedures of governmental agencies, as well as the legal responsibilities and rights of workers, trade unions, and employers. A specialist employment lawyer can help you understand your role and obligations when it comes to employment law.

Employment Contracts

An employment contract is an essential part of hiring. It’s documentation detailing the conditions of employment and ensures the employment complies with relevant legislation, as well as the requirements of Fair Work Australia, specific awards, and relevant enterprise agreements. It’s your opportunity to both protect your business, for confidentiality and competition, and ensure your employee’s rights are protected as well.

Having a plan in place as well as a robust legal framework will ensure the best possible result in a manner that is legally compliant.

Employment Lawyers for Startups

Startups face a variety of employment issues that other business structures don’t. Because they’re often tightly knit and somewhat spontaneous, there can be problems as the business starts to grow, especially when it comes to the intertwining of employees and early shareholders. If you’re paying in equity or promising payment in different forms for early contractors or employees, these actions and arrangements must be well documented. This makes it far easier to keep things amicable and clear in the future.
